Bio

Pavel Datsyuk Bio

Here's how you know a player is extra special: His name inspires an adjective. And in the first decade of the 21st Century, amazing plays became "Datsyukian."

There were Datsyukian dekes, (coined by Red Wings announcer Ken Daniels), and Datsyukian goals and Datsyukian passes and Datsyukian dangles and Datsyukian backchecks and Datsyukian steals of the puck.
